Great Ideas – – {28 Thankful Projects}

Ooh, the preparations that are currently happening in our homes!  Some of us are busy preparing for Thanksgiving while some of us are preparing for Christmas.  Either way, it is the busiest time of the year.  With so many things occurring it is easy to forgot what the true meaning behind both of the holidays are!  Make sure you STOP and appreciate the little things, because life, my friends, is precious!
